That Lovelight is unbelievable all right. An unbelievably excruciating, tooth-grindingly terrible embarrassment. I'll pass thanks.

Another one of those "it was cool to see it live" moments,
and fun to listen to once if you weren't there, but not something that merits repeated listening.

edit - I am assuming that this is Bear's work initially . It is incredible he achieved this clarity in '66 . Wow .

'The oldest juveniles in the State of California'. And that wonderful mid-60s keyboard sound. Love it. Great quality.

Well, I have to admit, I only ever gave it one listen myself; I know we've covered this ground before (how do they sound when folks "sit in"? IE, Winwood, Fleetwood Mac, Crosby, etc.), and I never think they sound great...it's only the historical interest, IMHO, that makes it worth a one time run through.

[lest anyone jump on the list above, I think Winwood's is okay, so too the FMac extravaganza, but I just don't think the "all star" lineups ever live up to expectations unless they've worked at it a while...I'd much prefer a few NRPS personnel joining the stage in 70 that JJ. Might just be me though, perfectionist/practice makes perfect sort that I be...Now, if you want some really great basslines, developed over yrs of practice, there's this Scotsman, Jack...]

One of the worst 'collaborations' was when the Beach Boys came on. It just totally killed the momentum of what was, up until then, a great show. Things never really recovered after the surf boys left.

If I remember right I think they managed to pull off one or two tunes with BBs but for the most part it was god awful.

What was totally beyond belief was that the Grateful Dead, in the middle of their show, gave up the stage for the Beach Boys. Absolutely bizarre. Who else did they ever do that for? I'm guessing no one.

I think maybe out of respect, or just for kicks? They couldn't have actually thought it would work musically.

Dangerous ground offering Bruce Tell an alternative version of 'Spoonful'.

Ha! "BT"!? I love it!

And for you, Rob, if you're reading this far down, my brother reminds me that our mutual friend from TenYrsAfter did one of the best Spoonfuls ever...

Nonetheless, if you have a chance to watch JB's finger picking on this tune live (ie, vid's like "Live Fresh Cream"), even when the recordings or versions are not esp great ones, his complex note production, both speed and clarity, are something to behold.

Sure--you asked for it; here's one from the LFC vid mentioned above (again, poor version, IMHO, relative to what they were capable of, but you still get to see his handy work):

Here's another where you can watch him a bit:

Rob, this one's for you too: here's one where you can hear how well he sang (just ignore the initial absurd narrator, and poor quality--his voice comes thru, esp given the echo of the Hall):

Ok, I'm about 8 minutes in and I've got the basic idea ... I mean they're just having fun but I don't find it necessary to listen to 18 full minutes of it.

I was so struck by this line, because there was a time when this is precisely how I felt:

"...I don't find it necessary to listen to 18 full minutes of it."

You know that you are taking it too seriously when you DO feel it necessary!

I are more liberated than that nowadays.

Here's to liberation.

I never did understand the people who profess to go straight from one show to another. Always smacked of the monomaniacal to me.
